I can't find this stuff anywhere around me (northern MA & southern NH).

I've been to supermarkets, Wal-Mart, hardware stores, Home Depot and Lowes.

I ended up buying a 10-pack online.

Anyone else having this problem?

you couldn't find it in a local hardware store? this place is about
10 years behind the times, but you can find it at Ace and Home Depot.

I get mine at Walmart. I am still not sold on using it on my dishes, but it does a bang up job on my stove.

Be sure to wear stong rubber gloves. You don't want to get that stuff on your hands. Might take the skin off!

It's not that bad. It works on pots and pans and the top of the stove.

I've never used it on dishes.

I read the warning and I didn't see anything about wearing gloves. I'll have to look again but I haven't had a problem so far.

It does contain a small amount of Sodium Hydroxide/ Caustic Soda (De-greaser)
Prolonged use may cause some redness, dryness of the hands etc....

It comes in a pump spray bottle. You spray it on the pan and leave it for 15-20 minutes. When it comes time to clean the pan, the crud comes off with one of those blue scrubbie sponges. My hands have never been bothered by the stuff.

Never used it...Used as you describe certainly doesn't qualify as "prolonged use"


Have Fun!

I just tried to find some of this last week at my local Krogers and they didn't have it on the shelf. I really like how it gets the hard to scrub stuff clean, baked on crap just slides right off.
